I have good bad and good news. It's gonna cost you money to pot-hole proof your Sky. But you can do it. And if you do it you'll love the ride.Gramps here with yet another post.
My wife and I find the stiff suspension for performance handing to be a very serious problem.
I realize my desire is unusual, especially on this forum. Has anyone here ever done this, or read of another doing it? I really don't know where to start looking for soft-ride suspension replacements. I don't know the specs to compare.
1. First of all - get rid of Run-On-Flat tires if you have them. They make the car jump around a lot.
2. To pot-hole proof your car you must install the DDMWorks brace bundle. If you have a base you need the sway bars too. It'll make your car heavier so it doesn't bounce so much and it gives the car a smoother and more solid ride.
3. And you need tires that give you a smooth ride (BF Goodrich g-Comp A/S work for me). Inexpensive tires are a recipe for disaster.)
Yes. You can replace the suspension (with OEM from rockauto) - and you might notice a difference.
I doubt that's be enough to make you happy with your car.
If I had to do it one step at a time I'd start with the tires.
If your shocks are yellow - they are OEM.
The last resort solution is to swap out the 18" rims with 17" and get tires with a 55 ratio.
